license python Code style: black

Based on the GOBLIN (General Overview for a Backcasting approach of Livestock INtensification) land use tool module

The package takes scenario input data, spared,utilised grassland area, the soil class breakdown for the spared grassland area, as well as the calibration year and target year. It produces a land use dataframe for grassland, cropland, forest, wetland, settlements and farmable conditon. It also produces a transition matrix, in the form of a dataframe, which captures the areas transitioning from one land use category to another.

Finally, this package produces an afforestation dataframe that can be used by the cbm_runner, which is broken down by forest yield classes. The soil groups relate to those found in the Teagasc national farm survey. The soil groups are mapped to yield classes based on research conducted by Farrelly, N. and Gallagher, G (2015).

An example has been provided below. Total grassland, spared area and spared area breakdown area generated by the grassland_production module.

Final result are pandas dataframes that can be read by numerous GOBLIN packages, including GOBLIN lite and GeoGOBLIN (catchment level).

The geo_landcover_assignment sub module is intended for use at the catchment level and interfaces with the catchment_data_api to retrieve catchment specific data that has been derived from Ireland’s National Land Cover map.

For national level analysis, the historic land uses and areas of organic and mineral soil are taken from the National Invetory CRF Tables.

The package is currently parameterised for use in the Irish context.

Installation

Install from git hub.

pip install "landcover_assignment@git+https://github.com/GOBLIN-Proj/landcover_assignment.git@main" 

Usage

The baseline year represents the scenario baseline. The target year is the end year for each one of the scenarios.

The scenario dataframe is the scenario input parameters.

Spared area and grassland area represent the calculated spared area and the remaining grassland area, respectively.
